Colonel Marbles Miniatures Masterworks

Colonel Marbels Miniatures Masterworks seems to be generally idle, but its Army Showcases are invaluable if they cover what you're looking for. I like the Fishmen and Pirates.

I just painted twice as fast!

Ha! I've been whining a lot about how slowly I've painted my Naps, 350+ figures over two years. Well, I bought them two years ago, but poking around my site, I just found this entry which indicates I fooled around and only painted about 50 in the first year. So, overall, I've been painting my Naps twice as quickly as I thought I had been! I guess it's nice to keep a little journal to track your progress...

Mini Realms

Just ran across Mini Realms. Mostly fantasy/sci-fi, but there's some interesting and creative stuff in there, like some custom sculpts. I'm adding it to the blogroll.

Uhlans on the way

Got half a unit of Napoleonic Astrian Uhlans painted yesterday...

Paper Dungeon Tiles

Germy's World has produced some free, nice looking paper dungeon tiles. A very inexpensive and adequate alternative to the very expensive resin dungeons, thanks Germy!

I've checked out the Republique page at the War Times Journal a lot for their OOBs for Wagram, but I just saw they also have uniform painting guides, always nice.

Small Obsessessions' Painting Lair

Small Obsessions has a new painting lair with a very nice layout. I should be getting a new area soon...stay tuned for details...
